A FIVE-PIECE band of punk-rockers are releasing a new Bond-themed track to raise money for two charities close to their heart.

Brighton-based Creature Creature are fundraising for Pancreatic Cancer Action and St Wilfred’s Hospice with their new song “No Time To Die” - which shares the name of the upcoming Bond film this autumn.

Daniel Scully, frontman of the band, said: “We lost our good friend and excellent photographer, Will Suttill, to pancreatic cancer in 2019 when he was only 33, and St Wilfred’s Hospice were fantastic to him in his final months.

“Pancreatic cancer suffers from an extreme lack of awareness and funding so when we decided we wanted to fundraise through the release of our song, St Wilfred’s Hospice and Pancreatic Cancer Action were the obvious choices.”

Fifty per cent of first month sales and streams of the song will be donated to the two charities, with the band also organising two intimate live shows for their campaign in Newhaven and Brighton on October 1 and 2 respectively.

The song aims to capture the core elements of a classic Bond song, both musically and lyrically, with production from former Slaves to Gravity frontman Tom Gleeson and mastered by Pete Maher, who has worked with U2, The Rolling Stones and Nick Cave.

It has already attracted almost 100,000 views on YouTube since 2019, but the song’s release for streaming was postponed alongside delays to the Bond film’s cinematic release.

The track will be released for streaming and download on October 1, the day after the latest Bond thriller hits cinemas.

In the 25th film in the Bond franchise, with Daniel Craig playing the agent for the last time, 007 will be approached to help in a search for a missing scientist, but face a villain whose schemes could kill millions.

People can also donate directly to Creature Creature’s fundraiser through the band’s JustGiving page at https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/battleofthebondsongs.
